30,000 move on to Liberty Plaza! No Arrests


NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–October 5, 2011.  Today was a big day for Occupy Wall St. More people then ever before showed up for the march that may very well leave a foot print in history. More than 30,000 people from Foley Square to Zuccotti Park. The numbers of people has increased from 500 during the day to now 30,000 in just a matter of one week. The atmosphere was more exhilarating than anyone has experienced. Multiple people said they could feel the energy and it made them feel as if they were in a euphoric state of mind.

The march to Foley Square consisted of about 2,000 people. The goal was to march to the park and meet up with everyone from the unions. A total of 30 unions supported us today. Not only did we meet everyone from the unions but the city of New York itself. Speeches from all the union representatives helped get the crowd excited and build the energy. Back at headquarters the crew is scrambling to make sure everything stays in order and the cameras are rolling. Access to the city cameras was obtained and used to monitor the march. Once Foley Square was finished the NYPD blocked off traffic for the enormous crowd that walked down Broadway. Once everyone was at Zuccotti Park we all sang and danced to the beat of drums and bellowing voices.

The excitement did not last all night though, the crowd did turn with rage and arrest were made. A group of protesters rallied up together and started on a march to Wall St in the middle of the night. The police barracked the entrance and some of the protesters decided to push over the barricades and try to proceed forward. This resulted in the start of arrests being made. Police began making arrests about 7:45 p.m. when protesters sat down on the sidewalks outside the barricades and refused to move. Multiple people were hit with batons and maced plus arrested. It was a bad night for OWS.

It is reported that more thans 150 cities are being occupied around the country, this information can be found at occupytogether.com. The occupation is growing every day, with each police brutality they grow larger. With each march they grow larger. They are a flame that can not be put out now, everyone is listening and everyone is watching. The world is aware now and the movement is moving forward.
